About Añañau

Añañau is a nonprofit and non-governmental organization that works to empower disadvantaged children and families through sustainable education and development projects in Peru.

Añañau (pronounced as a·nja·njau) is an expression in Quechua, the old language that is still spoken in the Andes, that mothers use to say ‘how beautiful’ and ‘how sweet’ their child is, a tenderness from the mother’s heart.

Too often children and youths from deprived families and ethnic minorities are lost out of sight. This is what Añañau wants to change, in order that they also receive the same opportunities as others and have access to quality and inclusive education. Be a part and help us to support our mission!

Añañau aims to offer each child a meaningful future. This implies that every child is entitled to good intellectual, quality and inclusive education.
